Do your employees tend to hit the vending machine for a “pick me up” snack when they get tired in the afternoon? There is in fact a close relationship between not sleeping well and eating poorly. And one-third of adults report not getting the recommended amount of sleep on a regular basis, which can lead to mistakes at work, loss of interest, and lower productivity.
March is National Nutrition Month and National Sleep Awareness Month – and a great opportunity to help your employees eat and sleep healthier and be more productive at work.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Workplace Health Resource Center includes resources to help you promote better nutrition and improve the sleeping habits of your employees:
- Sleep: An Important Health and Safety Concern at Work offers strategies to help employees get the sleep they need.
- Nine Hacks to a Healthier Meeting or Conference provides tips for healthier eating during meetings.
- Cause and Effect of Fatigue is a short YouTube video by the National Safety Council.
- The Get Enough Sleep module shows how sleep can help prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes.
Improvements in sleep and nutrition can make a big difference in employees’ productivity.
